Being an egg (cis or trans?)


In queer circles the term "being an egg" refers to not having come out of one's shell as some kind of transgender or nonbinary person.

Eggs may obsessively talk about things that indicate that they are trans, but they still make themselves believe they are cis... or at least not trans.

Over at CDL members are looking at forums sharing egg memes.

Male or Female? Transgender Memories

Cheryl writes about her life as a transgender crossdreamer, and how she has come full circle when it comes to her understanding of what it means to be a man or a woman:

"I have come full circle with my view on gender, as I now feel like I did as a child that we are all the same, and that gender does not really matter. Male and females are the same, I know in reality men and women are very different, but to aid my sanity I have decided that we are all the same. We can be who we want and we can express who we want to be, subject to confidence and social situation."

Jaimie Veale's Identity-Defense Model (aka how did I not know about this until now???)


The scientist and transgender woman Jaimie Veale has argued that the reason so many transgender people realize they are transgender later in life, is because they have the kind of personality types that make them want to fit in and please others.

This theory has led to an interesting discussion over at Crossdream Life.

"Traps" in anime, manga and pop culture and the Bowserette craze

Lost takes a close look at how the idea of a "trap" (a feminine looking person assigned male at birth attracting straight men through deception) has popped up in the discussions of anime, manga and pop culture.

Read the post "Traps" in Anime and Pop culture here!

This thread got started due to the current "Bowserette" craze, where a clever use of a magical crown in a new version of the Mario Bros computer game gave it a gender-crossing angle.

Lost's analysis of the Bowserette phenomenon can be found here.
